Valve launches Steam Guides through Community Hubs

Steam Guides are out of beta and have been incorporated into Valve's digital distribution service, according to a press release from the company.

All players can now create and share guides, walkthroughs and tips through each game's Community Hub.

"Players may easily create guides through Steam, where they may upload images, add screenshots and embed YouTube videos. Guides are then quickly accessible through Steam, via the Steam Community and in-game via the Steam Overlay," the press release reads. You can find a how-to guide at the new Steam Guides website.

Valve introduced the guides as "Steam Game Guides" last month. At the time, they were restricted to the Steam Community Beta. Today's announcement also allows guides for non-gaming software, like the design and modeling programs recently made available through Steam Greenlight.
